Nevegal cheese takes its name from the Nevegal mountains which overlook the city of Belluno, so called because it snows a great deal there (neve is the Italian for snow) in winter. Nevegal is a ski area close to the city, also popular with summer day-trippers and holidaymakers, traditionally frequented by people from Belluno and Venice. It is rich in pastureland, with walking, horse-riding and mountain bike paths which cross the Pre-Alps in all directions between the provinces of Treviso and Belluno in the Veneto region.
Nevegal is cylindrical in shape, with a height of 7-9 cm, diameter of 30-34cm and weight of 6-7 Kg per uncut piece. The rind is soft and pale in colour. The interior is white, smooth and creamy, with a sweet flavour. It is unevenly dotted with a small number of holes. The cheese is matured for 20-30 days.
